Thanks for your interest in this! We take it as a complement:)
However, it doesn’t make sense for a number of reasons. Pulsar-23 is far more complex than Lyra 8, exponentially so. The risk that something goes wrong is much higher, making it a pretty big financial risk for customers should they mess something up.
A ‘simplified’ building manual is not really realistic due to the complexity of Pulsar-23. It would require a lot of guidance and support from Soma, which would take away time from working on new Soma instruments.
Lastly, in terms of cost it may end up being more expensive than buying an assembled Pulsar-23. We are able to lower costs for customers by purchasing all components and chips in bulk at lower prices, which is not possible for DIY hobbyists. And we have very efficient manufacturing which keeps costs low as well, while also guaranteeing a top quality end product after years of refining the production process and machines we use for Pulsar-23.
We understand your desire to tinker with a DIY Pulsar project as it’s a unique beast, but it’s just not feasible.
